They’re playing instruments!  Will buyers make a bad note of that?  Will it strike a chord with buyers?  Imagine walking into the room and seeing them head-on!

There’s no walking room left in this bedroom.  The bed takes up almost all of the space.  [Amsterdam, The Netherlands]

They do things differently on the continent.  Bathrooms, for one example.  This is a bathroom in a Dutch home for sale.  You ask the questions.  I don’t want to know.

We’re not sure what to make of this room in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.  Washer/dryer combo, tankless water heater above, and wet bar?  Very continental, you know.

I was on a Realtor home tour this summer.  As we approached the next home, there was a pit bull a few houses away, chained outside, in the 100+ degree heat, barking.  Many agents thought it was cruel for the dog to be chained outside in the heat; many others were turned off by the dog (buyers would have to drive past it every day).

Interesting use of space in a Dutch home’s basement.  The chest looks like a coffin!  No home showings after sunset!  There’s even a fish pond.  The pond filter is that gray square box in the middle of the photo.

Invite your friends over to spend time in the basement grotto.  Fun!
